Abstract:

In 2007, alcohol-related collisions in Indiana (9,942) produced 232 fatal crashes, killing 253 individuals. Therefore, less than three percent of all crashes generated 28.2 percent of Indiana’s 898 traffic fatalities in 2007. This fact sheet presents information on alcohol-related traffic collisions in Indiana. It examines Indiana’s comparative status among other Great Lakes states, different dimensions of alcohol-related collisions, the general incidence of alcohol testing, and the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test results reported in the Indiana State Police Automated Reporting Information Exchange System (ARIES), as of May 4, 2008.
